“Your passion is for you, your purpose is for others. Your passion makes you happy. But when you use your passion to make a difference in someone else’s life, that’s a service, that’s a purpose, and that’s the hand. ” [22:54]

“Being able to reflect and observe the different voices inside of us is a great place to start your self-awareness because the biggest challenge is that most of us don’t know what we’re listening to. Most of us don’t even know that there is more than one voice inside of us.” [32:28]

  1. My 2 cats died recently, I was devasted, got a test to write, I lost all my motivation and this video was the one I was looking for without knowing that I was looking for this. Thank you for interviewing him, Tom.

  2. The comment of the host calling his wife crazy, challenging her believes as dumb, being sexist with the "wives tales" remarks. Maybe women that do care for other human beings all their lives have something to teach us?.. The host has ruined this interview for me. He has learnt nothing from all that incredible people sitting in his coach. I feel sorry for his wife already. "Big Narcissistic Warning Alarm Bells Ringing"
